Feature Suggestion : Emergency Hard Reset
Hi everybody !
I thought about an emergency feature that would delete automaticly all the data (and eventually re-write them for more efficiency) when you enter your preset hard reset password.
I know this feature is clearly not a priority but in few years it could be on the top of the to do list so I’m suggesting it. It would definitely interested some “important” people (and even normal people), and be a main line feature.
For instance, your lockscreen password is “BestPasswordEver”, and your hard reset password (that you’ve chosen) is “MyDataIsMyData”. If somebody’s forcing you to tell your password but you know you have sensitive informations on your phone, you just have to give him the secret hard reset password “MyDataIsMyData” and when he will enter it, the phone will immediatly start the factory reset.
If we push the concept even further, it could show a fake session, in which we would have put fake important documents, apps, contacts, photos, etc so that the bad guy doesn’t know all the real data are being wiped in the background.
Of course, with that feature it's better not to use facial recognition or fingerprint sensor. It would be too easy to unlock your device by force.
